Ukulele gig report - more impromptu strumming

Well, a friend and I yesterday afternoon entertained a pub beer garden with two ukes (one Fluke and one Flea) whilst sat in the gorgeous UK sunshine. Lot's of interest in the ukulele (including one chap who asked whether my Fluke was a Lute... - but as always, by way of inspiration to beginner players, I provide our set list below.

9 to 5 - Dolly Parton
The Weight - The Band
No Woman No Cry - Bob Marley
Sittin On The Dock Of The Bay - Otis Redding

I Wanna Be Like You
Valerie - The Zutons
In The Summertime - Mungo Jerry
Black Horse and The Cherry Tree - KT Tunstall

Come Up And See Me - Steve Harley
Lady Madonna - Beatles
A Pair Of Brown Eyes - The Pogues
